Lydia Bell created this event and ran it for the past two years, in order to raise money for her masters in Jazz Singing, which she is now on, and then to raise money for the homeless charity Emmaus. She has made the event a huge success, and as her career builds in London, she is sure to gain recognition for her mature, warm tones which suit the swing style so well. She is surely a 'Classic Jazz Voice'.
SWEETING SWING BAND
The Sweeting Swing Band entertain crowds all over Essex, and have something for everyone. For this night they have tailored their set to include all the classic big band sounds, some old Hollywood favourites and some wartime classics. With talented players and a fantastic band leader, Phil Sweeting, this band really has something special. Prepare to be transported back in time with them.
THE SEASIDE STOMPERS
The Seaside Stompers are a swing dancing troupe from Southend who will be swinging, jiving, lindy-hopping and balboa-ing their way through the evening. They'll be putting on some spectacular displays, as well as teaching you some moves so you can cut across the dance floor in style to the sensational music. Expect flying footwork, sequins, infectious energy and above all, FUN!
